Jill Zarin loves her some media attention! Nary a day goes by without Jill getting some press or giving an interview. And sure she is spreading the word about Skweeze Couture, but for someone who claims to be over her appearance on Real Housewives of New York she has a difficult time not talking about it! I guess it is her claim to fame…

In the latest, Jill spoke to Rob Shuter via his HDNet show Naught But Nice With Rob and talked about how she’s changed since leaving the show. “Whatever I say no one will believe me, but I never lie. I am so happy to be off that show,” Jill starts off by saying, adding that she’s sad to lose her paycheck!

As to what’s different now that she is no longer beholden to Bravo, Jill insists she’s back to being “me”. “I got my happy back,” she explains. “I didn’t realize it when I was in it, but I think I became like a monster to the people around me because I was under so much stress.”

Jill goes on to describe the filming process as leaving the ladies “strung out,” due to stress. “It just takes so much energy; this manipulation, of trying to figure out whose team you’re on and who’s your friend and who’s your enemy. It just sucks up all the air in the room,” Jill elaborates.

To illustrate how happy she is, Jill explains that at a recent dinner party for her birthday (which was attended by maybe “life-long” friend Kelly Bensimon) her guests kept telling Jill how much she’s “changed,” with her friends mentioning that she was calm and relaxed. Former cast mate LuAnn de Lesseps was also due to attend Jill’s birthday, but arrived too late because of a scheduled filming.

Jill also mentioned her plans to film her own reality show, claiming it will be filled with less drama! But the question is will there be any takers?

“There won’t be any puppeteers pulling strings to make fights, and there won’t be jealousy,” explained Jill. “There wont be those kinds of things that change who people are. I just really want to do my own thing. I just really want to be with my family. I had a lot of anxiety. I had no control and I’m a little bit of a control freak.”

While the world awaits the verdict on whether any network will pick up Jill’s proposed show, she will be returning to TV on Dec. 25, as a judge on “Iron Chef” alongside Art Smith.

In other RHONY news, Jill may not miss being part of the cast but it seems her former cast mates certainly miss her, surprisingly. “It’s different. The girls are different so it’s a totally different experience,” LuAnn said, speaking to HollywoodLife. ”I always miss the girls. We worked a long time together. You miss people you’re comfortable with.”

Ramona Singer agreed, commenting: “It’s sad not to have all the girls that I grew up on the show with. We all did this together. But change can be good.” Admitting that she misses fellow blonde Alex McCord the most, Ramona promised the upcoming season will still be good! While she isn’t revealing who’s in and who’s out as far as casting, saying: “We’re not allowed to talk about the new girls,” Ramona promises, “It’s going to be a great show [though].”

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT JILL IS HAPPY TO BE AWAY FROM RHONY? ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT SHE ADMITTED THE SHOW TURNED HER INTO A MONSTER? DO YOU THINK RAMONA AND LUANN REALLY MISS THEIR FORMER CO-STARS?


In response to The Situation‘s lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch, the company apparently believes they’ve done nothing wrong and The Situation has no grounds to sue them after they supposedly banned him from wearing their clothes and then referenced his famous phrases on two of their t-shirts! The company is accusing The Situation of having both a baseless lawsuit and of being unable to take a joke. Seriously.

The Situation filed a lawsuit against the company for knocking off slogans he claims he trademarked. The trademarks in question G.T.L and The Situation, of course!

Abercrombie & Fitch now denies the Jersey Shore star has any grounds to sue them “because he doesn’t technically own the trademarks in question… he only applied for them.” According to TMZ, A&F claims The Situation’s application for Gym Tan Laundry has been “suspended” because MTV “already owns ‘Gym Tanning Laundry,’ and the US Patent & Trademark Office thinks they’re too similar.” Oh my…

Despite the trademark issues, Abercrombie also believes that producing the shirts in question is actually protected under a law that “allows parody as part of free speech.” Not only that they were meant to be a joke and The Situation should get a sense of humor! The Situation has yet to comment on Abercrombie’s claims.

In other Jersey Shore news Snooki has been on a diet! And girl looks good! Revealing her new bikini body on Twitter, Snooki has been dieting and exercising diligently — and it has paid off. “So happy I’m at my goal weight I was when I was in high school! Feelin fit is amazing and can’t wait to tone up hardcore,” Snooki tweeted. And to complete her total transformation, Snooki asked Santa for a pair of “knockers” like JWoww‘s! Photos of a bikini clad Snooki are below.

With The Bachelor premiering next month, Ben Flajnik is spilling some details about his upcoming season and claiming that actress Jennifer Love Hewitt wanted to take him off the market before ABC had the chance!

Us Weekly confirms that Ben went on one date with the 32-year-old actress before signing on to become The Bachelor. A witness spotted the pair on an awkward seeming “first date” at Lion’s Pub in San Francisco this August. “It seemed like a first date, but he wasn’t overly affectionate,” the witness reported, adding that Jennifer seemed very interested in Ben! “As the bar started to close she grabbed his hand and marched outside.”

Ben confirms that Jennifer initiated everything! “She had reached out to me and wanted to come up to the winery so she did with some friends,” Ben explained.

“She’s a nice girl, but… after this is all said and done, I want to go back to Northern California to my normal life,” he disclosed. “Ending up with a Hollywood celebrity is not something I ever imagined doing.” Well, good thing he had 25 more eligible bachelorettes to choose from! Other reports have also claimed Ben thought Jennifer was a little cray-cray!

Speaking of the upcoming season, Ben reveals he is happy he participated in the show. Now that filming has completed Ben is happily settling into his life post-reality TV, but did he find love? Zap2It covered a recent press conference Ben did to advertise the new season and he’s not giving away any details!

“I’m happy with my decision in doing the show. Another good experience, another cathartic, therapeutic adventure… I can’t tell you [if I'm happy with the outcome]. I’m happy with the experience, I’m happy I decided to become the bachelor,” Ben divulged. “I have no regrets about anything that I did. I feel like my decisions were well thought out and I’ll leave it at that.”

“When that first limo pulled up, sheer panic and terror set in. It took the first few ladies for me to kind of settle in. Your heart is racing, it’s nerve-wracking on both sides,” Ben said, describing the initial meet-n-greet with the women.

After going through the process himself, Ben is empathetic to the choice his former love Ashley Hebert faced and understands being torn between two people. “You’re obviously trying to figure out a lot of things along the way and it’s a difficult situation. Easily the hardest thing I’ve had to do in my entire life,” Ben recounted. “You’re always thinking about each individual relationship, where it’s going, where it’s not going. It’s difficult.”

While we’re all wondering if Ben will be walking down the aisle, Bachelor host Chris Harrison isn’t giving anything away either only commenting that Ben is “in the right place to find love.”

ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT WANTED TO GO ON A DATE WITH BEN? DO YOU THINK BEN PROPOSED ON HIS SEASON?


There’s never a dull moment in Real Housewives of New Jersey land! I’m sure most of you heard of the Twittercation involving The View co-host Sherri Shepherd, Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga over the weekend.

It seems that Sherri and her husband were attending a party in New Jersey and who should show up but Melissa, hauling with her a buncha drama. Le sigh. And if you are wondering what kind of people get into an argument at a Christmas party, look no further than the hot-tempered ladies of RHONJ!

Sherri, rightfully annoyed that a peaceful evening was ruined by squabbling twelve-year-olds women, took to Twitter to complain about the nonsense. “Why am I at a party in Jersey with Sal & one of the New Jersey Housewives gets into an altercation w someone! This is surreal & a #hotmess,” Sherri admonished, via Twitter. Sherri initially believed Teresa was the hot mess in question, but Teresa immediately set her straight, Tweeting: “And no I was NOT at the Jersey party w/ @SherriEShepherd yest. I was in NYC w/my kids. She’s got her hot mess NJHousewives mixed up! ;) xx”

After realizing her error Sherri, tweeted her sorries. “Apology to @Teresa_Giudice … thought you were at the party. I swear you got a doppleganger [sic]! Just as well – the drama didn’t involve you!” Teresa sort of does have a doppelganger (assuming she knows what that is): her sister in law Melissa — who as it turns out was the hot mess in question! Oh dear.

It seems Melissa attended the get together with Kathy Wakile and some bickering occurred in the bathroom — wait didn’t this already happen at the Posche Fashion Show? Melissa instantly went on the defense over Sherri’s “hot mess” accusation and replied, “”No honey! Someone tried 2 pull a publicity stunt last night 2try & cause drama, I was upset they did that!” Melissa claims she was jut an innocent bystander victimized by fame seeking harlots. uh huh. Again, haven’t we heard this story before (ahem… Posche Fashion Show)?

Speaking to the Huffington Post, Melissa explains her side of the story and insists it was all nonsense stirred up by a random party guest looking for a spot on RHONJ. “Someone tried to cause a fake fight to get attention because they are trying to be on the new ‘Housewives.’ ”

“Someone pretended that they overheard me and Kathy talking about a girl in the bathroom that is trying to get on the next season,” Melissa recounts. “I knew it was B.S. because we didn’t talk about anyone in the bathroom. So I called them out on it right away.”

“The girl admitted it the next day,” Melissa added. “It was so stupid they were just trying to get attention.” Richie Wakile summed up the incident as, “Fake ass people out there! & you know who you are bitches!”

No word on who the “girl” is, but I’m guessing there is a lot more to this story than meets the eye — particularly with all the rumors swirling about Melissa as of late!

If you’re wondering if Melissa is tired of living “On Display” the answer is of course not! A fan tweeted her asking just that and she replied: “It comes with territory what I don’t like is the lying, everyone has an opinion I can’t get mad at that! Xo” Will the insanity never cease?

In other RHONJ news, Jacqueline Laurita is up to her Twitter antics again and this time she is admitting something we all suspected! Apparently her friendship with Melissa is not exactly what it’s portrayed to be! After giving Melissa a shout-out for producing payroll sheets to prove she was never a dancer, a fan asked Jacs about the nature of her relationship with her ex-bestfriend’s sister-in-law. Jacqueline Tweetplied: “Got friendly w/Mel bc I respect her as Ts fam.I like her.Shes always been nice2me.We dont talk&hangout like bffs.C her here&there”

My interpretation: Jacqueline got angry at Teresa and started buddy-ing up with Melissa to make Teresa angry.

DO YOU BELIEVE MELISSA’S ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAPPENED OR IS THERE MORE TO THE STORY? WAS SHERRI RIGHT TO CALL THESE DRAMA QUEENS OUT? ARE YOU SURPRISED JACQUELINE AND MELISSA AREN’T REALLY CLOSE FRIENDS?


From her short foray into reality television on Real Housewives of Miami, everyone remembers two things about Larsa Pippen: 1) her snooty attitude and 2) that her husband, Scottie Pippen was supposedly broke!

After Scottie was listed in a CNBC.com article titled “15 Athletes Gone Bankrupt,” it seems several other media sources started repeating that the retired NBA star was broke! Dismissing the story wasn’t helped by the rumor that the Pippens were unable to sell their Miami home, featured on RHOM.

Well, Scottie is taking issues with media outlets reporting the so-called false claims of his bankruptcy and insisting he is actually worth no less than $40 million! The Chicago Sun Times is reporting that on Tuesday, Scottie filed a $9 million dollar federal lawsuit against several online media outlets, including: CNBC.com, CBSports, Arizona State University, Comcast Corp. and General Electric Co.

According to TMZ, Scottie’s suit claims he “never filed for bankruptcy and indeed has a substantial net worth, which has not been less than approximately $40 million in the last 10 years.” He is furious over shoddy reporting suggesting otherwise! “It is a most foul libel indeed to be falsely accused of being bankrupt,” the suit states.

Scottie believes these false stories were damaging to his reputation and he is seeking retribution for “negligence, false light and defamation.” Scottie’s suit alleges that each media outlet that “besmirched” his name should pay him $1 million in damages. Wow — that should pay for a lot of nannies!

IS SCOTTIE RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT AGAINST MEDIA OUTLETS FOR FALSE REPORTING? DO YOU THINK HE IS BROKE?

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Bob took Sheree to court, Phaedra got played by Bob, Kandi talked her new self-pleasure line and Kim struggled for her daughter to accept KJ.

Things begin with Phaedra and Sheree meeting to discuss Bob’s modification of child support. Phaedra explains it will be a very engrossing process with a lot of sorting through everyone’s business. Sheree is emotional because it is dealing with something very dear to her heart: her money, according to Phaedra. Sheree is still unwilling to put Dead Beat Head Butt Bob in jail for back child support, but Phaedra promises to be the diligent legal eagle and get her the justice she deserves!

Casting drama is nothing new for Real Housewives of New York. In the latest upset to plague the show, a potential new Housewife was given the axe after her husband was charged with investment fraud. But why? It makes for such interesting television!

The NY Post is reporting that Annie Churchill was on a short list of contenders to be added to the newly revamped Season 5 cast when producers discovered a dirty little secret; her husband Andrew Albert was arrested and charged with grand larceny and fraud after several investors accused him of using over $600,000 collected for a proposed online-shopping website for personal expenses. Wow! Here comes the NY version of Taylor Armstrong!

According to sources the network made the decision to avoid mingling with anyone else facing criminal charges given Russell Armstrong‘s recent suicide, thus Annie was given the boot. Michael Farkas a lawyer for Andrew confirmed that Bravo decided not cast Annie in the wake of what happened adding that his client is completely innocent and currently working to fight the charges, which he claims are “baseless.” Although Annie is not included in the cast full-time, her rep is claiming she may still make a small appearance in the upcoming season.

Bravo is not commenting on the latest gossip. “We haven’t finished shooting this season yet, so we haven’t made any kind of casting decisions for season five yet,” a rep for the network stated.

In other RHONY news one of the new Housewives has a famous relative! Fran Dresher is known for her role as the nanny turned housewife on The Nanny, but now she’s also gaining some attention for being the cousin of new RHONY Housewife Aviva Drescher. Speaking to the Huffington Post‘s Rob Shuter, Fran talks about how reality TV isn’t really her cup of tea, but she isn’t going to pull a Real Housewives of New Jersey and start some televised family drama over the ordeal.

“I would never [do a reality show],” Fran told Rob, adding that she’s been approached several times to become the subject of one! “During the times that reality was so big, sitcoms were so not en vogue. ‘We should do a reality show with you,’ [I was told] and I said no,” Fran relays. “First of all, I don’t like them. It appeals to the lowest common denominator. It’s not really reality, because they have to have conflict in them to have people sitting there.” Wow! She really, really doesn’t like them.

“I’ve never flipped a table in my life,” Fran added with a laugh. “I’m scared to admit, but one of my cousins is one of the new ‘Housewives’ of New York and yesterday we had my book party at Dylan’s Candy Bar. … Well, I said hello and we talked a little bit.”

Finally some former NY Housewives news, Kelly Bensimon is contradicting herself again. In a new interview with Zap2it, Kelly claims she was never really friends with ex-cast mates LuAnn de Lesseps and Jill Zarin!

When asked if she keeps in touch with any of her former co-stars, the ditzy model replied: “Luann I speak to and Jill I talk to. We were cast mates, not really friends.”

Interesting, considering that in a recent interview with AVENUE Magazine, Kelly revealed that one of the positives of participating in the show was making a “life-long” friend in Jill. Jill agreed, telling the mag, “Our friendship is real. She’s the most loyal, good friend you could ever count on. She’s such a hard worker.” The two have also been photographed together post-Housewives. So which is it, Kelly? Friends or not?

THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST CASTING DRAMA? WAS BRAVO RIGHT TO AXE ANNIE CHURCHILL? DO YOU WANT TO SEE FRAN DRESCHER MAKE AN APPEARANCE ON HOUSEWIVES? DO YOU BELIEVE KELLY AND JILL ARE FRIENDS OR NOT?


Will they or won’t they… be one of the only Bachelorette couples to marry! Former Bachelorette Ashley Hebert and her fiancé JP Rosenbaum are still engaged but they have no plans to walk down the aisle just yet.

The couple spoke to US Weekly at ASPCA’s “Blessing of the Animals” in NYC this Sunday and the couple, along with their dog, Boo, confirmed they are still happy but there’s no wedding date set! “Well, I’m almost done with school. I just have a week and a half [left],” Ashley explained. “I think once that’s done I can start turning my attention elsewhere.”

The couple is still happily engaged and enjoying their time living together in NYC. “We really are best friends, [so] just being together is a lot to look forward to,” Ashley said of their relationship, adding that the couple “looks forward to building our lives together.”

JP echoed that they just “want to wait for the right time” before walking down the aisle. The right time like when ABC schedules their nuptials??

And Ashley is happy about her rejected former beau Ben Flajnik‘s turn on The Bachelor. “He’s a really good guy,” Ashley said. “We both really respect him. I hope he has better… You know, a better experience than I gave him.”

Speaking of Ben, an extended trailer for his upcoming season of The Bachelor has just been released and it promises bachelorettes at war (literally), covert activity, plenty of crying, and a very, very crazy villainess in the form of Courtney Robertson, a model from AZ who tries to seduce Ben by skinnydipping!
